Black-throated Green Warbler

Black-throated Green Warbler
The black-throated green warbler is a wood warbler that is found in the eastern half of North America. They breed primarily in the boreal and coniferous forests of eastern Canada, although there is an Appalachian subspecies that breed in the cypress swamps of Virginia, North and South Carolina. Black-throated green warbles feed on insects and their larva which they glean from leaves and small branches. In the winter they migrate to southern Florida, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and northern parts of South America.
